It’s best to get a brake check before your Acura TL shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Acura TL like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Acura advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2001 Acura TL brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 2001 Acura TL brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your TL right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Acura TL brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Acura's standards.
Your Acura TL may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2001 Acura TL brake repairs. Our brake repair services include brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
